About this water

Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 06699 28597
Latitude: 58.203663
Longitude: -5.291321

Loch na hi-Uidhe Doimhne is a long, thin and in places deep loch that can be windswept and dour at times. It is a bit of a walk in - either from the Clachtoll peat track at NC044270 or from the Stoer peat track at NC040295 - and is best fished as part of a day among the myriad lochs here.
Work along the north western shore and round the bays and the northern end of the loch is sometimes more productive. It can produce nice fish around the pound mark but also lots of smaller trout.
Loch Poll Dhaidh, north east from the end of na hi-Uidhe Doimhne, is a large loch with lots of small, but beautiful trout and good for some sport if the day has been hard work. Don't ignore some of the shallower and smaller lochans around.
